ZIONIST 'NYT' says two-state solution should be saved by building 25-mile tunnel so that Israelis don't have to see Palestinians traveling to Gaza http://mondoweiss.net/2011/02/nyt-says-two-state-solution-should-be-saved-by-building-25-mile-tunnel-so-that-israelis-dont-have-to-see-palestinians-traveling-to-gaza.html
The New York Times Magazine has afforded Bernard Avishai a number of pages in its forthcoming issue to try and resuscitate two-state solution ideas of three years ago ... My mind reeled when I read this. Can a person really offer such an idea in good conscience as a concession to the Palestinians? I'm not phobic, but the idea of traveling 25 miles under the desert to see my grandmother-- wow! And let us be clear, this is all a form of gerrymandering; so that privileged people get to hold on to their Jewish democracy while the fragmented parts of Palestine are somehow unified.
ZIONIST Tom Friedman can't praise Egyptians without insulting Palestinians http://thefastertimes.com/politicalmedia/2011/02/08/tom-friedman-cant-praise-egyptians-without-insulting-palestinians/
Generally speaking, Friedman’s column in today’s New York Times is relatively harmless ... as far as it goes isn’t bad -- until the ever-present tendency to render Israel’s occupation of Palestine invisible rears its ugly head: "You almost never hear the word “Israel,” and the pictures of “martyrs” plastered around the square are something rarely seen in the Arab world -- Egyptians who died fighting for their own freedom not against Israel." (emphasis added) ...for Friedman, it’s simply impossible that Palestinians fighting against the occupation of their country are fighting for their own freedom as well.
